A lone courageous voice from within the Vatican

The New Scientist is reporting that the Vatican's chief astronomer has opposed recent unfortunate statements by Cardinal Christoph Schönborn that evolution is incompatible with a belief in God. It is a rare religious figure that defends the findings of science nowadays.

With the ever-present threat of Christian Creationist Intelligent Design proponents (including Presidoink Bush) trying to get their personal superstitions taught alongside science in the schools, it's refreshing to see that someone in the religious trenches has the courage to publicly say that we should let the evidence, not our emotions, drive policy.
